The Doc – aka my wife – says that I’m prone to bouts of Irritable Male Syndrome.

My computer crashing, being kept waiting and poor service seem to trigger my IMS.

Whilst the occasional whinge and moan can be cathartic, research shows that just like passive smoking, passive moaning can damage your health.

Researchers at the University of California have found that when someone complains, it lowers the mood of others in a process called neuronal mirroring.

Complaining has also been found to be exponential in nature, in that the more you complain, the greater and more frequent your level of complaining is likely to be in the future.

In others words, the more you moan, the more you become hard wired for negativity and the more likely you are to be called a grumpy old git!

So don’t become a member of the BMW* Club.

*bitching, moaning & whining

 

Humour

Business and shop signs:

On a Maternity Room door:

“Push. Push. Push.”

At a Car Dealership:

“The best way to get back on your feet – miss a car payment.”

In a Veterinarian’s waiting room:

“Be back in 5 minutes. Sit! Stay!”

At the Electric Company:

“We would be delighted if you send in your payment on time.
However, if you don’t, YOU will be de-lighted.”

In a restaurant window:

“Don’t stand there and be hungry; come on in and get fed up.”

In the front yard of a Funeral Home:

“Drive carefully. We’ll wait!”

At a Propane Filling Station:

“Thank Heaven for little grills.”

In a Radiator Shop:

“Best place in town to take a leak.”

At a Cemetery:

“We’ll be the last to let you down.”

 

Live big & love deep.
